Trevor Place was originally known as Hill Street and dates back to circa 1822 when W F Pocock began work on the replacement of Smith & Babers Floor cloth factory, which then stood towards the northern end of a large enclosure on the west side of the Trevor Estate. In 1827 additional land was acquired and further houses were built enabling a roadway to be built at the top of Montpelier Square connecting it to Kensington Road (Knightsbridge). 2 Trevor Place was originally known as Hill Street House and was built under a building agreement dated 1828 adjoining some stables. Most of the houses on the Trevor Estate were built of bricks made on site augmented by material from the Pocock's factory in Battersea. This reduced the brick shortage caused by the rush to complete buildings before the new Building Act came into force. Former notable residents of 2 Trevor Place include Charles Digby Harrod, son of the founder of Harrods, responsible for the firm's expansion from the 1860s. He was resident 1860 - 1870.
